    Music sounds great! But is Dave capable of just singing the song how it was recorded? Does he have to fucking ad lib every line?

    ugh

    Thanks for the link. Amazing how good he was even at age 60. Rolling from Mean street intro into Eruption. Too bad I never had a chance to see him live.

    when I click on the Guitar Player link, it shows up for a second, then disappears to:

    upload_2020-10-21_10-15-43.png

    but, it's there, because the very 1st time I clicked on it, it showed up momentarily. Not enough time to click on the video, or anything though.

    Still, when I click on it, it does the same thing...

    Still works for me. Honestly there is nothing worthwhile in that short piece.
    You can see and hear the performance off of YT.
    Here is the text of the article

    Van Halen closed out their 2015 North American tour with two performances at the Hollywood Bowl, on October 2 and October 4.

    At the time, no one knew that these would be Eddie Van Halen's final live performances ever, but sadly, the guitar hero succumbed to throat cancer on October 6, at the age of 65.

    particularly Eddie's electrifying, ten-minute guitar solo – their quality wasn't exactly superb. Now, however, soundboard audio – coupled with fan-shot footage from multiple angles – of the band's full October 4, 2015 show has been uploaded to YouTube by user Greg L. You can check it out above.
    The 21-song set was chock full of the band's biggest hits ("Hot For Teacher," "Panama" and "Jump," to name a few) and showed the band – Eddie in particular – in absolutely ferocious form.

    P.S.: If you want to skip straight to Eddie's solo, that begins at 1:34:36.
    End

    yes, the timestamp works in both the videos posted from the article.. Just skip to it for the solo. Choose to watch or listen.
    For fun, and if you are bored to death, you could almost sync up the two videos together to get a reverb affect. ha
